Condos with outdoor pools. Doesn’t that sound like bliss right now? With another round of frigid temperatures from Mother Nature moving in the greater Toronto area this weekend, we thought it would be the perfect time to imagine living in a condo building where the outdoor pool was just an elevator ride away.
We thought we’d do a summer fun piece today in anticipation of spending a lot more time outdoors. And who can resist condos with pools in Toronto for a refreshing dive and a luxury reprieve from a heat wave?
While a dip in your condo pool shouldn’t be the driving force behind picking one condo for sale in Toronto over another, it certainly doesn’t hurt. And finding a condo with a stellar outdoor pool is a serious score. Here are our top picks for best outdoor condo pools in Toronto.
The Thompson Hotel
It will be no surprise to readers that one of our top condo pools is The Thompson Hotel in the King West neighbourhood. The hotel is also a condo development that includes an incredible rooftop pool that also has a bit of scene to it as well, any day of the week during the summer months. Residents of the Thompson Residences get to share in the hotel’s amenities including the most stunning infinity pool in the city. The views that go along with that pool aren’t so bad too.
Fashion House Condos
Fashion House makes a very bold statement on King Street West, with its 12-storey building and lipstick red exterior. Developed by Freed, the stylish 12-storey residence provides residents an opportunity to enjoy a lavish lifestyle with exceptional amenities. The beautiful ninth-floor skypark features an elevated infinity pool surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and stylish lounge seating. The pool’s translucent glass walls and luminous side lighting create the perfect vibe for relaxation with views of the Six that are difficult to compete with.
Again, another hotel-condo development takes a spot on our list – The Bisha Hotel & Residences, and for good reason. This rooftop hotel makes you feel so close to the CN Tower you could touch it. Located on the 44th floor, this pool is strictly for guests of the hotel and the condo residences. They offer fantastic pool-side service for food and drinks, so if you’re looking for a taste of what it’s like to be a resident, book a staycation on a weekday and have the place to yourself.
Theatre Park Condos
Theatre Park is located in the heart of the historic theatre district at 224 King Street West. Theatre Park has become easily recognizable on the Toronto skyline due to its unique design. Finished in 2015 the 47-storey building features 234 loft-inspired residences that range in size from 530 square feet up to the sprawling 3,000+ square foot full-floor penthouse.
Residents of Theatre Park have access to fantastic five-star hotel style amenities including twenty-four-hour concierge and security, fully equipped fitness centre as well as an outdoor pool and terrace overlooking Roy Thomson Hall. Positioned for optimal sun exposure and great seating around the terrace, it’s one of our favourites in the city.
